Abstract

Resonance Raman (RR) and time-resolved resonance Raman (TR ) spectra are reported for the complexes of divalent ruthenium with the ligands 4,4′-bipyrimidine (bpm) and 2,2′-bipyridine (bpy), i.e. Ru(bpm) and Ru(bpy) (bpm) . Ground-state RR studies of the latter employing excitation with radiation of 413.1, 457.9 and 514.5 nm permit the assignment of an electronic absorption band maximizing at 428.5 nm to a Ru(II)-to-bpy charge-transfer transition, while the band maximum at 516.0 nm is assigned to the Ru(II)-to-bpm charge-transfer band. The TR studies employing the 354.7 nm harmonic of a 10 ns pulsed Nd:YAG laser provide definitive evidence for selective population of the bpm-localized excited state for the heteroleptic complex Ru(bpy) (bpm) . © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
